This spring, polar guide Inge Solheim (NOR) led an expedition of wounded British soldiers to the North Pole, a feat in itself but also a new world record. The expedition was the first ever to reach the North Pole with two amputees on the team. The expedition brought a BBC film crew along, as well as the Expedition Patron HRH Prince Harry, who joined the expedition for four days of the trek.
Barbro Kvaale (NOR) collected no less than four gold medals – out of four possible – during the 2011 FIS Rollerski World Championships in Aure/Kristiansund (NOR) August 9-13. That was more than expected for the Madshus racer.
Geir Ludvig Aasen Ouren (Madshus) and his teammate polished off the brutal mountain bike adventure race north of the Arctic Circle in 67 hours and change, winning the event with margin of 12 hours and 25 minutes to the second-place team.
